N.M. Kelby is also in the studio with us to talk about her newest book, a collection of short stories called A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts. N.M. Kelby is the author of The Constant Art of Being a Writer and several novels, including In the Company of Angels. She is working on the movie Whale Season with Dwight Yoakam.
This week’s highlights: a first-hour salute to the late Byron Lee’s Dynamic label and its roster of fine ska-tists, the long and short of it on Sherwood’s Planet, and yet another 4(+3)-in-a-row Bucket Hingley (Moon, Ska Satellite, Megalith founder) tribute in anticipation of his band The Toasters’ 10/22 appearance at Triple Rock. Barbie Gibbidyup Gaye’s pioneering Lollypop (see LOTW week 1) gets reprised, just to remind y’all who set the ball rolling back in ’56.
